    Welcome to the Burke Library
    The library at Burke plays an essential role in the life of the school. It's used as a gathering place; its resources allow students to make meaningful inquiries and intellectual connections; and the library program develops and refines the skills needed for sophisticated research.

    From early in the morning straight through the early evening, Burke's library is open and busy.

    Our collection has grown to 10,000 volumes, all available through our web catalog. Burke also offers online subscription databases, with access from both home and school, as well as a selection of e-books and extensive video library.

    Throughout their years at Burke, students learn library skills that enable them to be better researchers and higher level thinkers. They learn to search for information effectively and to evaluate the print and digital sources that they find. 

    The library program reflects the school’s effort to put students in charge of their own learning and inquiries.
